Northern Minority Tribe Lady Expresses Opinion On 3 Major Tribes Of Nigeria

> I am from the minorities. I've lived with the Igbos all my live and still do. I grew up with the Hausas as my closest neighbours and friends and I have friends who are Yorubas. Many of my favorite people are Igbo e.g Chimamanda Adichie but mehn, are they loud and raucous. Lol. That aside, the Igbos are a people whose drive to “make it” has benefited the country and at the same time given them a bad name. This bad name comes from their reputation of being shady business partners who don't have integrity and their poor customer relationship. A typical Igbo business man cares nothing for you once your money has entered his pocket. Yes, there are Igbo business men who have integrity but in general, Igbo business men need to do better considering that many Nigerians would create their opinion of the Igbo people based on their dealings with Igbo business men since they are everywhere. That notwithstanding, I love the Igbos for their determination to succeed despite the odds and their ability to stick to their goals until they attain success. This determination is the reason nollywood is what it is today and the reason many Nigerians can afford new dresses and shoes(thanks to ABA boys). I also love them for their patriotism to the Igbo nation though I do wish it isn't done at the detriment of Nigeria. The Hausa-Fulanis wrongly thought of by many as an all Muslim ethnic group is considered the largest ethnic group in the country. While the Fulani's are predominantly nomads, the Hausa's like the Igbos are also business inclined but unlike the Igbos, the average Hausa business man is known to speak the truth even to the detriment of his business. This explains why most Nigerians would rather do business with them hence their rise to power. People from minority tribes like Plateau state, before the recent spate of violence, trusted the Hausa's so much, they could entrust their lives and livelihood in their hands and sleep soundly. But you should know that there are dishonest Hausa people that I myself have encountered. maybe it is these dishonest people among who are currently causing a surge in the distrust of the Hausa-Fulani nationwide. I've told my Hausa-Fulani friends that their failure to call out the few among them who kill and maim for whatever reason is a sign of acquiescence but I digress. I love the Hausa-Fulanis for their simplicity and their ability to be grateful for little. The Hausa-Fulani have a high sense of the dignity of a job and do not consider any job to be beneath them. This is an attitude all Nigerians can learn from. The Yorubas are known down here in the north for their “kolo-kolo”(there's no English word that can capture this word but we could go with shiftiness). Known nationwide for their love for education as well as “owambe”(parties), the Yorubas are perhaps the most diverse because they are in business, education, healthcare, artisanship, etc. I love the Yorubas for their rich culture and their ability to sustain the Yoruba language despite being the most educated ethnic group. As a whole, I think each of these major tribes feels superior to to the other and thus entitled. We see this in national politics. I think they sometimes forget that Nigeria belongs to every Nigerian. Most importantly, I think each of this major ethnic group tends to be more interested in promoting its interest at the national level than the interest of Nigeria and this shouldn't be. There you go, that's my opinion of the Hausa-Fulani, Igbo and Yoruba people of Nigeria. P.S: There are always exceptions to any generality.
